Tried It Tuesday {Stitch Fix}

I can't believe that it is almost MAY!! Many of you will be finishing your school year soon. Wahoo! Even though my last day with students is not until June 26th, I am starting the countdown too. :) This week's tried it is something fun I tried for ME!
It's Time for Tried It Tuesday! 
What have you tried at school or home?
My Tried It:
Stitch Fix
Have you ever heard of Stitch Fix? It's an online styling service where your personal "shopper" will handpick five items for you to "try" in the comfort of your own home! I am not the best shopper and feel like I never have time to shop, so this is perfect for me! I like to stay up on the latest trends, but I fail miserably. 
I read about how my BBB, Jivey from Ideas by Jivey tried Stitch Fix and knew I just had to try it too! My co-worker, Emily, also tried Stitch Fix and loves it too! She has recently started a blog, Style Closet to the Classroom, that you should check out. Emily has amazing ideas and is so talented. I'm always learning something from her!

Here are some quick answers to how Stitch Fix works from their website.

I love that the $20 styling fee comes off the price of an item if you keep anything from the box. So, if I buy a shirt that is $40, the $20 is taken off of that and it is only $20 for the shirt! Any items you don't want are sent back in the prepaid envelope that is included in your box (no additional shipping fee!). Easy peasy!!

I was SO excited when my box arrived last week!
Everything was packed nice and neat.
Inside was this note:
My first item was this accessory. This wasn't really "me" so I sent it back.
My next item was this black shirt and although I liked the style when I held it up, I thought that it made my shoulders look huge when it was on. I sent this back too.

I LOVE this Maxi dress and this was a keeper! It was $68 and can't wait to wear it in warmer weather. I'll probably wear a long, lightweight white cardigan with it to work. The angles of the stripes on the side made the dress so slimming (a plus for us women!). The dress is by ReneeC. I took this picture late at night after my workout and still have my hair tie on my wrist. Oops! My hubby also didn't get my cute strappy sandals in the picture. I'll try better next time to get better pictures. :)

My last two items were these honeydew skinny jeans and this white tunic blouse. Both keepers!! The jeans were my splurge at $88 but I couldn't resist. They are something that I wouldn't normally pick out and the material was so soft and comfortable. The jeans are by JustBlack and the tunic is by 41Hawthorn. I had my hubby take this picture yesterday morning before I left for work. 
If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix (the most you'll be out is $20!), I would love it if you would use my referral code! I get $25 in credit for anyone that signs up with my code! Yay!
I already have my next fix set for Wednesday, May 21st! :)

  2. I keep seeing everyone posting about stitchfix and I'm debating over whether or not to do it... I actually started the sign-up process and then chicken out a few months ago.
    I'm such a cheapskate when it comes to clothes that I'm having a hard time convincing myself to splurge. Everyone's posts make it so tempting! I'll definitely use your code if I decide to do it :)

  3. You look so cutie patootie in your little outfits. Why do you look like you just went for a spa day treatment after your workout? I don't look like that. I look like I just ran 1,111 miles and had an allergic reaction to something. Lol!

  8. Love the dress, jeans, and the top, you look precious! I got that black shirt too, mine came in coral. I was on the fence, so I sent a picture to a friend and she urged me to keep it. Love the fabric, but the cut is different. I love the montthly "spoil me" boxes, so much fun to have something new to wear.

  9. I'm getting closer and closer to getting my very own "Stitch Fix!" You look fabulous! I'm afraid I'll get too carried away. Oh what the heck! YOLO! Right?
